Essex County Council is currently recruiting Team Leaders to deliver Summer 2020 National Citizen Service (NCS) to young people in Colchester.

This is a high volume seasonal piece of recruitment with the first wave commencing on 29th June 2020 with the last wave ending on 28th August. NCS is an exciting government-backed national programme that brings together young people from diverse backgrounds, providing them with amazing skills for the future, a chance to make a difference in the world and an awesome summer!

**There will be an assessment day on 14th March as part of the selection process. This will be held in Chelmsford city centre**

The programme is divided into three stages;

PHASE 1 - BE EPIC During the first phase of NCS, teams will camp overnight at Beaudesert residential centre in Staffordshire for four nights and five days. This residential is all about young people building confidence, getting to know their team and challenging themselves. The week will be jam packed with activities like raft building, high ropes or archery. Staff will support young people to overcome their fears to take part in various outdoor activities and build positive relationship with each other

PHASE 2 - LIVE LIFE During phase 2 teams will stay at Essex University in student accommodation. This University style residential helps young people become more independent, learn and enhance skills to become more employable. In teams they'll learn about social and community issues and be challenged in lots of different and exciting ways to prepare themselves for adulthood. Staff will support and deliver sessions enabling participants to learn new skills, prepare them for adult life and explore their communities whilst gaining independence

PHASE 3 - DO GOOD Using their newly-acquired skills, teams design and deliver a social action project in their local area using one of our youth centres as their base for the final one or two weeks. Staff will facilitate teams delivering their social action project within their community. Ideally you will be qualified at Level 2 or above in a JNC recognised Youth Work Qualification, or have experience of working with young people, which may be in a voluntary role, or experience of working on or taking part in NCS previously.
